    Well, let's start off by stating that unless you are jailbroken there is zero you can do. And unless your replacement is an iPhone 4s or below, even if you WERE jailbroken there would be nothing you could do.

    Your basically screwed trying to restore an iOS 9 backup on an iOS 8 device. If you really want to keep iOS 8 set up as new, that will still get you your contacts and iCloud email as well as photos if you have iCloud photo library on.
